Triazolam Detox and Withdrawal

Triazolam, a benzodiazepine, is generally prescribed for the short-term treatment of insomnia. It slows the brain’s activity to allow sleep. Halcion is a brand name of triazolam.
“Individuals who misuse or abuse triazolam favor its short-acting intoxication.”
Triazolam is listed as a Schedule IV drug under the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 because of its potential for abuse. Individuals who misuse or abuse triazolam favor its short-acting intoxication. According to an article in the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, benzodiazepines, such as triazolam, are the most commonly prescribed medications for insomnia, which affects approximately 10 to 15 percent of the adult population. The Journal of Medical Case Reports indicates a study that found that 25 percent of the respondents reported they had a prescription for their initial use of a benzodiazepine. Admissions for benzodiazepine abuse treatment tripled between 1998 and 2008, compared to an 11-percent increase in the overall treatment admissions for all substances during the same period.

Experiencing Detox

drug withdrawalDuring detox, your body will slowly purge triazolam from it. This is often done via a gradual step-down process where lower and lower doses of triazolam are given each day until eventually the body is totally free of the drug. Oftentimes, substitute medications are given to mitigate the severity of the withdrawal process.

While some triazolam addicts may attempt to detox at home on their own, this is not advised. Certain withdrawal symptoms that may develop, such as slowed breathing, can become life-threatening for some individuals. If these withdrawal symptoms occur in a detox center, medical professionals can step in and assist. If done alone at home, no such help is available and the detox process can even be fatal.
